z1-eco-radiobg.jpgRemember when people listened to music on portable radios? Chances are that at some point in the future our kids will probably be googling “boom box” to figure out what the heck we’re talking about, and they’ll be shocked to see how big our radios were “way back then.” But regardless of how dorky we may seem to our kids in the future, we’ve got a great little boom box for them to play with today. The EcoRadio by Ecotronics is fun little toy radio for ages 12 months and up, which is powered without batteries. Each button produces a different sound or song and is impressively loud considering that it is powered without batteries (did I say that already?). As you can probably tell, I’m pretty excited about that last part…almost as excited as my kids are about their new toy. Speaking of which, my three-year-old just snatched it out of his baby brother’s hands and exclaimed, “This is neat!” I guess he can already appreciate the inherent coolness of eco-conscious retro toys. Or maybe he just thinks it’s really fun to play with. Either way, we’re happy happy all around.
